Residents of Dresden, Germany, are celebrating the grand opening of a new building and the relocating of their State Operetta. The Operetta will now reside in the Kraftwek Mitte Dresden, a former power station located in the city center.

To make way for the Operetta, a large theatrical complex was built on the foundations of the old plant, combining the plant’s landmark brick architecture with a modern theater building. The Dresden State Operetta, combined with the Theater Junge Generation Company, will share the space and host two opening premiers - the operetta by Jacques Offenbach, "Orpheus in the Underworld" by Jacques Offenbach on December 17th and "Wonderful Town," the Leonard Bernstein musical, on December 22nd.  The new theater will open officially on December 30, 2016, and will be celebrated with an official opening gala.

There will also be a range of performances in 2017. New versions and premiers of operetta classics like "The Bat," "The Merry Widow," and "White Horse Inn," in addition musicals like "Catch Me If You Can," and "La Cage aux Folles," and light operas including "Hansel and Gretel" and "The Tale of Tsar Saltan" will be performed. New productions will have their debuts at the Dresden State Operetta as well, including "The Marriage of Figaro" on March 13, 2017 and the musical "Zzaun!" on October 28, 2017. 

 Audiences of the Operetta can expect concerts, guest performances and more.
